Palestinian women become bread makers and bread winners

Palestine: Bread-Winner, Bread-Maker

School meals being prepared by local Palestinian women are serving a two-fold purpose – they are helping to improve nutrition among children and providing the women a much needed income.

It's all part of a programme that began in 2010.

Supported by the Palestinian Authority, UN Women and the Government of Norway, the programme encourages Palestinian women to become entrepreneurs by providing nutritious, economic meals in the conflict-affected West Bank, where border blockades have increased the price of food.

We hear more from UN Television's Francis Meade.
